Community development is a process whereby community members come together to take collective action and generate solutions to common problems. It adopts a grassroot or a bottom up approach to finding viable solutions by the community for the various issues plaguing it. Participation of the community as a whole has to be an integral part for the programme to be sustainable.
The programmes supported by Concern India Foundation work with communities at different levels to help bring about a socio-economic change for those surviving on the periphery of mainstream society.
Through Community development we impact large number of people, and sustain the programmes with people’s ownership. We give prime importance to people’s participation and decision making to the matters related to their lives, villages and society at large. Under the community development programme, we support several sub-issues to address the various social problems of the community be it rural or urban.
